Listen to the Original
Missa Luba was originally recorded about 1958 by Les Troubadours Du Roi Baudouin, a choir of Congolese school boys and their teachers, and released in the US about 1965. It is amazing! I believe the version on this page was recorded in 1991 by the Muugano National Choir of Kenya. Although the 1991 version is pleasant, it lacks the joy and vitality of the original.
